  • Grumble grumble - iPhone

    I'm due to renew the smart phones at work and I'm getting a push for iPhones =/ Damn suckers!

    I'd much rather get some Palm Pre's but with none in australia for the forseeable future I may not be "allowed" to wait.

    My question is does the iPhone behave and work well with Exchange 2007? I MUST have push/pull email.

    Are there any other decent Smart Phone alternatives. We currently use Palm Treo 750's and they're pretty much rock solid but I'm starting to get a few quirks with them. Damn engineered obsolescence. I don't want to get a Palm Pro as the feature set for a new phone is crap. I mena a 2MP camera FFS.

    Cheers,
    Brad

    Don't fight it, it will still happen anyway when the execs just go and buy one.

    Works fine with exchange here at work. Some fiddlign about to get the wifi to work without constantly needing to sign in (we use peap with certificates) but seems to work well enough.

    I don't have one though

    Cheers

        I had a Blackberries in my previous role. Nice units but require their own server or you pay someone else to deliver the mail to you.

        I've used 3 different models, the Bold is awesome but the Storm would be sweet. Still I have exchange pushing email out ourselves, I'm not about to pay anyone to add another gateway in between =(

          I wouldnt use them for business personally. Great units plenty of stupid shit you can do with them, battery life is woeful. For that reason alone i wont be getting another.

          VPN into our IPSec config was fine on my phone although I couldn't get it to talk to our exchange server. I havent looked into it much since trying initially simply because it is my personal phone, not subsidised at all by work.

            I have the imate jasjam, that is a re-branded HTC phone, I think it's great.

            I believe the new Samsungs (coming in a month) are meant to be better than the iphones ?
            Why do programmers get Christmas and Hallowe'en mixed up?

              Actually they had imate jasjams here before the Palms, I don't mind them but they're big bastards

              Like I said I'd love the new Palm Pre's though

                I'm getting an N97 in a few weeks - ultimate phone, I was going to get a SE Xperia X1 but strangely I changed my mind.

                  Yeah I've had a look at the specs on the N97. Damn nice!

                      WE use Iphones at alot of our sites....they work fine with Exchange. The Blackberry server software can be really really painfull......Be sure to ask around alot to people who use it before you decide to go with bb.

                      I'll second the battery life on the Iphone....it's terrible.
